Pros and Cons of Wedding Receptions in Austin

Every city has wonderful things about it. Take a look at the pros and cons of having your wedding reception in Austin.

Advantages

  • Weather
    Austin experiences about 300 days of sunshine making it the ideal destination for outdoor gatherings, weddings included. The weather supports activities like taking a dip in the Lady Bird Lake located in South Congress or the Colorado River.
  • The arts and music scene
    Nothing shapes Austin's culture as much as the arts and music scene. There's always something going on in town, and the festivals, in particular, attract audiences from all around the world. Get ready for great wedding reception entertainment.

  • Increasing diversity
    The Texas capital attracts people from different ethnicities and demographics. The blend of cultures gives the city new perspectives while also enriching its culture.

  • Gas is affordable
    A vehicle is a necessity for Austin natives but the cost of operating a car in the city is more affordable compared to elsewhere. This bodes well for saving gas as you plan and prepare for the wedding.

  • Great place to invest in property
    The city keeps growing and in turn, the property market in Austin is strengthened. As long as the influx of newcomers descends on the Texas capital, it's a sound decision to invest in rental properties. More opportunities means more companies available for events.

Disadvantages

  • Traffic is terrible
    Besides having to rely on a vehicle to get around in Austin, traffic can become unbearable at times. The growing population has a hand in it and it also puts a strain on the available infrastructure. Keep traffic woes in mind as you choose a wedding reception venue.

  • It's still a Texas city
    While the city has made strides in fostering diversity, the slogan "keep Austin weird" prevails. Liberal views are still not universally accepted particularly when it comes to same-gender marriages and gun ownership.

  • Not a sports-centric city
    Austin isn't what you’d describe as a sports fan's stomping ground because it doesn't have a pro sports team to speak of in the first place. The city still has its unique sports culture with plenty of recreational opportunities on offer.

  • Parking
    A busy city means parking can be tough anywhere that business is booming. If your Austin wedding reception venue is in a busy location, be aware of the parking complexities.

  • You'll need an air-conditioning system
    The weather is pleasant for almost the entire year but the rising summer temperatures can get unbearable. An air conditioning system is necessary to make the wedding reception conditions indoors more comfortable.
